Four possible Saturdays during April.

Please select your preferred date.
Voting will close on 1st April.

Please note British summer time will have begun by then, so start time will be 22:00 BST (21:00 GMT). I think I got that right :?

See you all there...

I can only make the first two. I'll be on a plane on the 17th and I'll be... where will I be on the 24? Somewhere in England possibly without access to the 'net. So I suspect I'll miss this month- have fun people!

The 24th I'll be in Latvia at a meeting, so very unlikely to make it. Otherwise I should be there.
